1.1  Overview. The Services are intended to be an online collaborative platform that allows users to create and share 3D content, consisting of (a) Studio, an online editor where users can use predefined assets and objects to create 3D content (each, a “Project”), (b) Workspaces, where users can collaborate on Projects, (c) Public Project Link (Beta), where users can create a publicly accessible link to a Project that can be used on websites, tools and social media (such a Project, a “Public Project”). Projects will be made public and accessible to the other users of the Services under the licensing terms set forth in Section 1.1.1.

1.1.1  License to Projects.  Vectary does not claim ownership of Projects.  However, when you share your Projects as cloneable, you agree to license such Projects under the terms of the Creative Commons “No Rights Reserved” (“CC0”). For the avoidance of doubt, you should not share any Projects based on Non-Vectary Resources as cloneable. You represent that you own such Project or have all necessary rights to such Project to enable you to license such Projects under the terms of the CC0.  Please remember that other users may search for, see, use, modify and reproduce any of your cloneable Public Projects that you create and share by using the Services. Please note that this license does allow commercial uses of your cloneable Public Projects, as long as such use is compliant with the license terms. You agree that Vectary may provide attribution to you for your Public Projects through hyperlink and/or through providing a list of all user-contributors. 

1.1.2  Re-Use of Projects. The Services contains Projects which are published by or created by other users, subject to the terms of the CC0.  When re-using any Projects that we host, you agree to comply with the relevant attribution requirements of such license (or for any Non-Vectary Resources, you agree to comply with the relevant attribution requirements of the applicable license, whether CC0 or not).  When modifying or making additions to Projects that you have obtained from the shared workspace provided by Vectary and decide to share them as cloneable, you agree to license the modified or added content under the CC0 or a later version thereof.



1.2  License.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the Subscription Term (as defined below), Vectary hereby grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable right for you and your employees and independent contractors authorized by you to access and use the Services on your behalf (“Authorized Users”) to access and use the Services on a remote basis, including any software programs and associated interfaces and related technology that Vectary makes available pursuant to this Agreement, in accordance with the standard end-user technical documentation, specifications, materials and other information Vectary makes available electronically at https://www.vectary.com/docs/ (the “Documentation”).

For purposes of this Agreement, a “Registered User” is a user who has registered an account on the Website (“Account”) or has a valid account on a social networking service (“SNS”) through which the user has connected to the Services (each such account, a “SNS Account”).   

2.1.1  Account Types. Vectary offers two types of Accounts: a free account with limited features (“Free Account”) or a paid professional account with additional features (“Paid Account”). With a Paid Account, you may have additional workspaces, which may allow you to invite other users and designate them as an “owner,” “viewer” or “editor” for that specific workspace.

By granting Vectary access to any SNS Accounts, you understand that Vectary may access, make available and store (if applicable) any information (including your name, email address and profile picture), data, and other materials accessible through the Services (collectively, “Content”) that you have provided to and stored in your SNS Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Services via your Account.  Please note that if a SNS Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Vectary’s access to such SNS Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Services. If you would like to disable the connection between your Account and your SNS Accounts, please contact [email protected] to link your Account to an email address instead of your SNS Account(s).  PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR SNS ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND VECTARY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR INFORMATION THAT MAY BE PROVIDED TO IT BY SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS IN VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY SETTINGS THAT YOU HAVE SET IN SUCH SNS ACCOUNTS.

You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself. You agree that you shall not have more than one Account at any given time. Vectary reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights. You agree not to create an Account or use any Services if you have been previously removed by Vectary, or if you have been previously banned from any of Vectary’s products or services.

7. Term and Termination

7.1  Term.  This Agreement will begin on the date that you accept it (in accordance with the preamble) (the “Effective Date”) and continue until terminated in accordance with the terms herein (the “Term”).  Subscriptions will commence as of the date Vectary confirms your selection of a monthly or annual subscription package and continue for the period set forth therein, unless terminated earlier in accordance with Section 7.2.

You may terminate your Account, your access to the Services, and this Agreement at any time, for any reason, by logging into your Account and going to the “Account Settings” page to delete your Account; provided, however, that you must cancel your subscription before it renews (i.e., in accordance with Section 9.2), in order to avoid the Fees for the renewal term. If you do not cancel the Services prior to the renewal term, you shall remain responsible for paying the Fees for the rest of the then-current subscription term.  If timely payment cannot be charged to your Payment Provider for any reason, if you have materially breached any provision of the Agreement, or if Vectary is required to do so by law (e.g., where the provision of the Services is, or becomes, unlawful), Vectary has the right to, immediately and without notice, suspend or terminate any Services provided to you. You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in Vectary’s sole discretion and that Vectary shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your Account.

Upon termination of any Service, your right to use such Service will automatically terminate immediately. Vectary will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any suspension or termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Vectary terminates this Agreement for any reason other than your breach, Vectary will refund any prepaid fees for the remainder of the terminated portion of the Subscription Term.

7.4  Survival.  Sections 1.2, 1.3, 3, 7.3, 7.4, 9-12, 14 and 15 will survive the termination of this Agreement.

You agree to pay all fees or charges in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable, as set forth on Vectary’s Pricing Page available at https://www.vectary.com/pricing/. If you are using an Enterprise Account, the Subscription Term, payment method and payment terms set forth in the applicable Statement of Work shall govern your use of such Enterprise Account. If you are using a Premium Account, you must provide Vectary with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) (“Payment Provider”), as a condition to signing up for Services for which we charge. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities. Vectary reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting through the Services or by e-mail delivery to you.

9.2  Automatic Renewal. You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you create your Premium Account and select your monthly or annual package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”).  Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with this Agreement. After your Initial Subscription Term, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically renew for successive periods equal to the Initial Subscription Term (the “Renewal Subscription Terms”), your current Service Subscription Fee, or if communicated to you by Vectary, at Vectary’s then-current price for such subscription, unless you log into your Account and go to the account settings under the “Plans and Billing” page and cancel before the end of the then-current subscription period. The “Subscription Term” shall mean the Initial Subscription Term and any Renewal Subscription Terms. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current Subscription Term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires and you will be rolled back to a Free Account thereafter.  However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize Paddle to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period.  Upon renewal of your subscription, if Paddle does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Vectary may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).

9.3  Taxes. Prices displayed on any Service are inclusive of any applicable sales tax, value added tax (VAT) or similar at the rate that is in force from time to time. 

9.4  Refunds. If you are a consumer and have your habitual residence in the European Union or the United Kingdom, you have the right to cancel your purchase of any subscription without reason within fourteen (14) days of the initial purchase and request a refund of the relevant Service Subscription Fee. If you use the relevant subscription at all during that fourteen (14)-day period, we reserve the right to pro-rate any refund to reflect such use. In order to request a refund, please inform us via email by an unequivocal statement (e.g., email in the following form: “Vectary Inc., e-mail: [email protected]. I/We hereby give notice that I/We (*) hereby withdraw from the following Paid Account: [insert applicable Paid Account].” Any refund will be issued to the same payment method used for the relevant purchase. 

9.5  Third Party Provider. Vectary currently uses Paddle.com Inc (“Paddle”) as the third-party service provider for payment services (e.g., card acceptance, merchant settlement, and related services). By providing Paddle with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Paddle is authorized to immediately charge you for all fees and charges due and payable to Vectary hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Paddle of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. By making payments through the Services, you agree to be bound by Paddle’s Privacy Policy and hereby consent and authorize Vectary and Paddle to share any information and payment instructions you provide with one or more third-party providers to the minimum extent required to complete your transactions.

If you purchase any Paid Account, you will be charged a monthly or annual Subscription Fee (as applicable), which you agree will be automatically charged with the payment information provided to Paddle at the beginning of each Subscription Period until you cancel.

11.1.1  Vectary’s Obligation.  Subject to Section 11.1.3 below, Vectary will defend any suit brought against you by a third party to the extent that the suit is based upon a claim that the Services, as provided to you by Vectary, infringe such third party’s United States copyrights or patents, or misappropriates such third party’s trade secrets recognized as such under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act or such other similar laws, and Vectary will pay those costs and damages finally awarded against you in any such action or those costs and damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of such claim, in each case that are specifically attributable to such claim.  However, such defense and payments are subject to the conditions that: (a) Vectary will be notified promptly in writing by you of any such claim; (b) Vectary will have sole control of the defense and all negotiations for any settlement or compromise of such claim; and (c) you will cooperate and, at Vectary’s request and expense, assist in such defense.  This Section 11.1 states Vectary’s entire liability and your sole and exclusive remedy for any infringement and/or misappropriation claims.

11.1.2  Alternative.  If your use of the Services is prevented by injunction or court order because of infringement, or should the Services be likely to become the subject of any claim in Vectary’s sole opinion, you will permit Vectary, at the sole discretion of Vectary and no expense to you, to: (i) procure for you the right to continue using such Services in accordance with this Agreement; or (ii) replace or modify the Services so that it becomes non-infringing while providing substantially similar features.  Where (i) and (ii) above are not commercially feasible for Vectary, the applicable licenses will immediately terminate and Vectary will refund pro-rated fees for the remainder of the term to you.

11.1.3  Exclusions.  Vectary will have no liability to you for any claim of infringement or misappropriation to the extent based upon: (a) use of the Services not in accordance with this Agreement or the Documentation; (b) the combination of the Services with third party hardware or software not conforming to the operating environment specified in Documentation; or (c) any modification of the Services by any person other than Vectary (the “Exclusions”). You will indemnify Vectary against all liability, damages and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from any such Exclusions.


11.2  By You.  You will indemnify, defend and hold Vectary and its directors, officers, affiliate, employees, agents, partners, licensors, and suppliers harmless from and against any and all actual or alleged third-party claims and accompanying liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable external attorneys’ fees arising out of or in connection with your breach or alleged breach of Section 4.3.

We will be responsible for claims and liability for any allegations of infringement of a third party’s intellectual property by the Services as provided by Vectary. You will be responsible for claims and liability that relate to your use of the Services.

12. Limitation of Liability

12.1  TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL VECTARY BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR ANY SERVICES OR SUPPORT SERVICES PROVIDED HEREIN, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, LOSS OF REVENUES, LOSS OF PROFITS, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, EVEN IF VECTARY KNOWS OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL VECTARY’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES RECEIVED BY VECTARY FROM YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING SUCH CLAIM. THIS SECTION 12 WILL APPLY EVEN IF AN EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT HAS FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

12.2  EXCEPT FOR VECTARY’S OBLIGATIONS TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS SET FORTH IN VECTARY’S PRIVACY POLICY, VECTARY ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE TIMELINESS, DELETION, MIS-DELIVERY OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY DATA (INCLUDING YOUR DATA), USER COMMUNICATIONS OR PERSONALIZATION SETTINGS.

12.3  THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN VECTARY AND YOU.

We will not be liable to you for amounts greater than the amounts you pay to us during any 6-month period.

14. Dispute Resolution

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully.  It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Vectary and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

14.1  Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of any of the Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with Vectary, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Vectary may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).  This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.  

14.2  Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent: National Registered Agents, Inc., 1209 Orange Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801.  The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider.  Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/.  JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267.  If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Vectary will pay them for you.  In addition, Vectary will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.  You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location.  Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

14.3  Authority of Arbitrator.  The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable.  The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Vectary.  The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded.  The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have.  The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.

14.4  Waiver of Jury Trial.  YOU AND VECTARY HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.  You and Vectary are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 14.1 above.  An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would.  However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.  

14.5  Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief.  ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.  If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this section’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of Delaware.  All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.  

14.6  30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: [email protected], within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Vectary username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Vectary account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement.    If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you.  Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.

14.7  Severability. Except as provided in Section 14.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

14.8  Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Vectary.

14.9  Modification.  Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Vectary makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Vectary at the following address: Vectary, Inc., [email protected].

We will use arbitration to resolve any claims between us, and you cannot join a class action lawsuit or obtain a jury trial for any disputes you have with us related to the use of the website and Services.

15. General

15.1  Electronic Communications.  The communications between you and Vectary may take place via electronic means, whether you visit any of the Services or send Vectary e-mails, or whether Vectary posts notices on the Website or other Services or communicates with you via e-mail.  For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from Vectary in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Vectary provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were to be in writing.  The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights, including the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act at 15 U.S.C. §7001 et seq. (“E-Sign”).

15.2  Notice.  Where Vectary requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Vectary with your most current e-mail address.  In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Vectary is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/permitted by the Agreement, Vectary’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.    

15.3  Relationship of Parties.  The parties hereto are independent contractors.  Nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to create an agency, employment, partnership, fiduciary or joint venture relationship between the parties.

15.4  Publicity.  Vectary may use your name and a description of your use of the Services for investor relations and marketing purposes.

15.5  International Users.  The Services can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Services and content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Vectary intends to announce such Services or content in your country. Vectary makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in your country or any other countries. Those who access or use the Services do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.

15.6  Compliance with Export Control Laws.  The Services may contain encryption technology controlled under U.S. export law, the export of which may require an export license from the U.S. Commerce Department.  You will comply with all applicable export control laws and regulations of the U.S. and other countries. In particular, but without limitation, the Services may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries, or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons List or Entity List. You will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Vectary from and against all fines, penalties, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Vectary as a result of your breach of this Section 15.6.

15.7  Assignment.  You may not assign or transfer, by operation of law, merger, change of control, or otherwise, any of its rights or delegate any of its duties under this Agreement (including its licenses and rights in connection with the Services) to any third party without Vectary’s prior written consent.  Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.  Vectary may assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Agreement.

15.8 
Governing Law and Venue.  This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding any conflict of law provisions that would require the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.  The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.  Any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement must be brought exclusively in a federal or state court located in the State of Delaware.  Each party irrevocably consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue in, and agrees to service of process issued by, any such court. IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER AND HAVE YOUR HABITUAL RESIDENCE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION OR THE UNITED KINGDOM, YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM ADDITIONAL RIGHTS AND PROTECTION AFFORDED TO YOU BY MANDATORY PROVISIONS OF THE LAW OF YOUR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, AND NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL AFFECT THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS AND PROTECTION.

15.9  Force Majeure.  Any delay in or failure of performance by either party under this Agreement, other than a failure to pay amounts when due, will not be considered a breach of this Agreement and will be excused to the extent caused by any occurrence beyond the reasonable control of such party, including acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.

15.10  Remedies.  Except as expressly provided elsewhere in this Agreement, the parties’ rights and remedies under this Agreement are cumulative.  You acknowledge that the Services contains valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of Vectary, that any actual or threatened breach of Sections 1.2 or 1.3 will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to Vectary for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach.  

15.11  Waiver; Severability.  Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.  If any provision of this Agreement is adjudicated to be unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.

15.12  Construction.  The Section headings of this Agreement are for convenience and will not be used to interpret this Agreement.  As used in this Agreement, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.”

15.13  Entire Agreement. The Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter.

You consent to receiving electronic communications. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of Delaware. Any dispute resolution will occur in Delaware. If any part of this Agreement is not enforceable, the rest of the Agreement remains in effect. This Agreement alone controls our relationship.
